Syracuse, located inland in New York state, is an educational and economic hub. Originally built upon swamp lands, its identity is closely tied to Syracuse University, and it is supported by several smaller colleges and professional schools. The city is also one of the country’s greenest; National Geographic’s Green Guide ranked it as one of America’s Top 20 green cities and Popular Science named it as No. 2 on its list of green cities in the Northeast.

The Oncenterencompasses the War Memorial Arena and John H. Mulroy Civic Center Theaters in a three-block footprint. Nearby is the Emerson Museum of Art that houses both visual works and one of the most exhaustive collections of poetry in the United States. Writings from this collection date all the way back to the 18th century.
